I first went to Liverpool and met Neil there. He showed me his home town and our hotel was located at beautiful Albert Dock - absolutely loved it. Liverpool reminds me very much of my favourite German city..Hamburg. Of course i am not able to post anything without mentioning the word "Beatles" this time and how could i not... they are from Liverpool! So we also had a little Beatles Tour.. 2 museums, the Cavern Club, Penny Lane, Hard days night hotel..
Next we went on to Llandudno, a seaside town in North Wales, absolutely beautiful. Looking at the beach and the palms there it didn't feel much like any part of the UK but more like California. Only the constant smell of Fish and Chips in the air made you remember where you are ;-) We had about 20°C but as the water is quite warm there no one could stop me from swimming in the sea.
On our second Wales day we were driving a little bit further south - to Betws y Coed, a lovely village in the countryside with a large river, waterfalls, stones and trees everywhere. After walking around for a while i found a hidden path alongside the river, it was so beautiful... that was also my favourite of those seven days.
The last days we spend in Chester, an old city near Liverpool, and ultimately in Manchester... as i didn't take a lot of holidays so far this year the next ones are ahead quite soon - just three more weeks. But believe it or not, i don't even know where i am going yet... oops :-) But we love spontanity don't we... see you soon
